The Social Studio FW 2012 collection debuted at the L’Oreal Melbourne fashion festival. The collection takes inspiration from world cultures, bringing exotic an exotic color palette and breezy silhouettes. Patterns resemble thick acrylic paint strokes, allowing the series a heavily artisan vibe. The deep blue hues chosen are reminiscent of Starry Night. The line is flirty and highly wearable, favoring simple frocks and pleated skirts. Memorable pieces include a exaggerated jersey dress in an electric orange, layered over a sheer black slip. Also memorable is the line of extremely sculptural necklaces. The pebble-shaped accessories combine with the ultra delicate apparel perfectly.
The Social Studio is an Australian fashion school, clothing label, cafe and community space created and run by the refugee community of Melbourne.

The social enterprise aims to spread the values of diversity, education, ethics and stainable design.
